Why Reframing Will Help You Speak with Confidence

Have you ever found yourself at a loss for words when trying to communicate to people? Maybe you struggle to speak on stage, speak up in meetings, or feel uncertain about expressing your thoughts and opinions. If this sounds familiar, it may be time to try reframing your mindset to boost your confidence in speaking.



Reframing is changing how you perceive a situation or thought, in order to create a more positive outcome. By reframing your thoughts and beliefs, you can begin to see speaking as an opportunity rather than a challenge. When I got out of the Air Force and moved from my last base in California to South Carolina, it was a culture shock and I spoke negatively about my situation every day. I was very negative and I didn't care who knew it. I'm quite embarrassed by my attitude, but I gotta call a spade a spade. Anyway, one day I said, 'you have got to change you attitude Sharon. Ok, you made a mistake. You should have stayed in the Air Force, but you have to deal with the reality that your life has changed and start helping other people in similar situations.' And that's exactly what I did. It wasn't easy or fast and I'm still working on it. Yet it was a gamechanger in getting more of what God had for me, because I was open to doing the work it took. I reframed -- reshaped my attitude from victim to victor and conqueror. And I was able to make a difference internally and externally.


One of the key benefits of reframing is that it can help shift your focus from self-doubt to self-assurance. Instead of dwelling on your fears of being judged or making a mistake, you can start to see speaking as a chance to share your knowledge and contribute valuable insights to a conversation.


Reframing can also help you approach speaking with a growth mindset. Rather than seeing each speaking opportunity as a test of your abilities, you can view it as a chance to learn and improve. This shift in perspective can help reduce pressure in order for you to speak with more confidence and authenticity.


Reframing can help you overcome negative self-talk and limiting beliefs that may be holding you back. By challenging these thoughts and replacing them with more positive and empowering ones, you can build a stronger foundation of confidence in your speaking power.


What else can you do to start reframing your mindset to speak with confidence?


Overall, reframing can be a powerful tool in helping you speak with confidence. By changing how you think about speaking, you can transform it from a source of anxiety to a source of growth and empowerment. Give it a try and see how it can make a difference in your communication skills and self-assurance.
